Yep. I'm in favour of the forum, and I think a *private* mailing list  
would be useful as well. The forum to discuss and toss options back  
and forth, the private mailing list (scale at drupal.org? :P) for  
allowing lots of big site maintainers to have private conversations.

OK, ok....the mailing list doesn't HAVE to be private (I wouldn't  
mind either way), just thinking it might allow things to be a little  
more open. What do you think, John?
